There are provisions to add to an operating agreement to address the death or incapacity of a member. Feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss how to move forward.

Membership interests in an LLC are considered the personal property of the interests holders. As such, you will need to include clauses in which you specifically name beneficiaries for those membership interests upon death of the interests holders. You may additionally need to include procedures for transfer (for example through membership certificates).
